When a new-to-you author has a series, it’s clear where in their oeuvre to start.
When a new-to-you author has a plethora of short stories, the amount of choices might be overwhelming.
So with that said — and in honor of the writer’s eighty-seventh birthday tomorrow — Emily Temple posted a sample of twenty-five Alice Munro short stories.

Munro, for those who aren’t familiar with her, is a Canadian writer best known for her short stories, of which she has published sixteen collections.
Munro received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013, the same year she announced her retirement from writing.
